Here she is this ol' thing I've been dragging around for years. It's been living out back, rusty and stinky so I brought her in [after hosing down] and cleaned her up--just so ya know, I finally got rid of that date in the corner of photos-sorry I'm such an amateur, you would never know my dad was a professional photographer I wish I'd learned more when he was still with us!
Love the rusty screws and hinges
So I took it apart
Painted it white and distressed with the palm sander and stained the top
You can see I left the metal mesh inserts cuz they're neat looking. I stained and wiped it off so it has a very distressed look and I added these cool knobs for a little understated bling...
and now she will live in the bathroom! I cut down 2 of those big old embroidered towels of my mom's and made little guest towels to hang on the handles I added to the sides of cabinet. Cute!!
